Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. With a strong and glad endeavor
Let us rally round the cross,
One in heart and zeal forever
Seek to save the world from loss.
In no scant and stinted measure
Be our wealth and service giv’n;
Let no love of ease or pleasure
Hedge to one the way to Heav’n.

2. In the joy of love’s communion,
Finding motive and reward;
Strong in purpose, strong in union,
As an army of the Lord,
Let us on to fight our battles
In the heav’nly Master’s name,
Though the thunder rolls and rattles,
Though the sheeted lightnings flame.
